About Speech Central

With Speech Central, you can access the internet from anywhere. You can use Bluetooth or headphones to listen to the headlines on your favorite websites and then select the linked articles to read. Feel the freedom of text to speech without having to prepare your first text to speech session ahead of time. While listening to your favorite sites on the go eliminates most screen reading, you will still receive articles from other sources such as email and social networks. There is a catch here. Using the system's built-in share function, you can import a web URL from any app, including all web browsers.

It has been great. But I have not been able to change the speed in the past few weeks, and the voice has is only the man's. I would change the speed to fast, but it would read at "normal". When I check the options, it's snapped back to normal.

About Selection Reader (Text to Speech)

A high-quality text-to-speech reader that can read large amounts of text with ease. Other text-to-speech extensions are bloated, slow, and frequently flaky—they can't read more than about 250 characters at a time without cutting out! Not to mention the dubious permissions they necessitate. Selection Reader is easy to use, fast, and can read a large amount of text at once. Simply select the text and right-click it!

Speech Central reviews

Best 8 buck I've ever spent. Homework readings are cut in half with reading 2x speed. Wish I knew this my freshman year.

- OHMYHIEP

Finally a decent app that doesn't require me to pay stupid amounts of $$ for an annual subscription just so I can listen to text at a non slow motion pace.

Selection Reader (Text to Speech) reviews

It works great, very helpful for long textbook readings. Though for some reason the reader will pause before moving on to the next line unless there a word is broken up. If it could get fixed, that would be perfect. If it doesn't that's okay too, I'll just work with it.

- Nuha El-Shikah

It's great, works like a charm and a good amount of options. No complaints, though it isn't perfect, nothing is.

- Daniel McSween

perfect. audio quality is best of all the text to speech extensions.
